Birds

Single or Series | Two school visits (1 hour) and a field trip (2 hours)

Students will explore the variety of bird species that live in Massachusetts year round as they learn how to identify birds by both sight and sound. Students will be able to practice their new identification skills during their field trip.

While hiking the sanctuary trails, students will use the knowledge learned in the classroom sessions to explore a variety of bird habitats, recording observations (both visual and auditory). Students will be introduced to how they can participate in community science projects and contribute to birding databases online.
